Just this morning, a dear friend got some sweets from his holiday and my mind began wondering – When we travel on vacation or on work, we tend to bring some form or the other of a gift. Why? How did this ritual originate?
I don’t know but I do have a list of my own to shop for when I travel. Could be for my cousin, my friends, colleagues or whoever but shop I must.
Maybe it is just a small gesture of having remembered them when traveling? Or maybe returning the gesture they made when they traveled. I don’t know the real reason. The soul searching continues as the sweets are being relished.
